Before we dive into the rest of the review, it’s best we get a few technicalities out of the way and give you the basics you need to know in order to make an informed purchase. The Nectar king mattress is 11 inches in height and gets its distinct comfort thanks to a clever mix of 4 different layers of foam, each providing a different level of support to eliminate back pain. When these 4 layers are combined, the Nectar mattress achieves one of the most comfortable sleeping experiences we’ve encountered in recent years. Here are the mattresses layers:


  • Support Core – Made of a breathable polyfoam with a thickness of 5.75 inches and a support level of 1.7 PCF (pounds per cubic foot) to give you firm yet gentle support.
  • Adaptive Memory Foam – Over time, this layer will make the Nectar mattress distinctly yours, matching your body’s contour and accommodating your most preferred sleeping positions. This 1.5 inch and 1.8 PCF layer is highly unique among direct-to-consumer mattresses and delivers excellent support. Find out more about memory foam.

  • Breathable Tencel Mattress Cover – The Nectar’s 4 layers are topped with a cozy mattress cover that complements the lower layer of cooling gel memory foam without taking away any of its coolness or comfort.

Nectar King Mattress Firmness

The Nectar mattress is available in one firmness level meant to accommodate all sleepers. The mattress’s firmness is rated as a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the least firm 10 being the highest level of firmness. Generally, this level of firmness would be considered medium to firm and is the recommended firmness level for the most common sleeping positions, although other mattress manufacturers may offer more firmness levels. At the same time, remember that if you have a preference for very soft mattresses, the Nectar may be less to your liking. Luckily, you have plenty of time to test the mattress as part of Nectar’s pro-consumer extended trial periods.

Prior to shipping directly to your doorstep, the Nectar King mattress is compressed, sealed in plastic, and placed in a tight box delivered by FedEx Ground services. Generally, you can expect your mattress to arrive within 1-5 days. Currently, shipping is only available within the continental United States. If you are located in Alaska or Hawaii, you’ll need to pay an additional freight fee. Once the package arrives, you’ll unbox and unroll the mattress to allow the mattress to begin decompressing. It usually takes less than a day for the mattress to fully decompress and expand to its real size. However, keep in mind that lower temperatures may slow this process down. Other than that, there is no assembly required. Simply place the mattress on your base and enjoy your good night’s sleep.

Nectar’s Trial Period

However, Nectar makes a great offer with its King-sized matt, giving you a full 365-day trial period to make up your mind. If you are unsatisfied with the mattress for any reason, let Nectar know and they’ll come to pick it up for free and refund your purchase.
